5 things I tried in June

by Kaylah Stroup

Karl Lagerfeld Highlighter. I received this in glossybox’s Karl Lagerfeld + Model Co limited edition box. To tell you how I feel about it in the shortest way possible, I wasn’t a highlighter person but now I am! This stuff is GORGEOUS. It adds the perfect amount of shine and looks fabulous all day long. It immediately became one of my daily use products!

Polaroid One Step 2 + I-Type film. I am SO excited to add this camera to my collection. Polaroid Originals recently released the OneStep 2, inspired by Polaroid’s original OneStep. The big difference here is that instead of the battery being contained in the film pack, the camera itself has the battery (and it’s rechargeable!) Since the battery pack isn’t in the film they’re able to offer it at a cheaper price than the other 600 films on the market. Depending on how often you shoot, upgrading from whatever old Polaroid 600 camera you already had may not seem worth it but I absolutely think it is.

As you may recall, I shot a ton of Polaroid Original film on our wedding trip. (Check them out here!) Then over the weekend, I shot through four packs of the i-Type film. (See those ones here.) I feel like the ones taken with the i-Type film and the new camera are so much better. The colors are more vibrant and the tones are prettier. Obviously, the price of film makes it a more attractive camera to shoot with than my old Polaroid but honestly, I think the photos come out nicer too!

I’m definitely looking forward to shooting more instant film now that I have this bad boy and film is cheaper.

Show Riche Grooming Balm. Another glossybox score. June’s box was actually full of great finds. Other than the eyelash curler, I loved everything in the box. This ‘grooming balm’ took the cake though. It smells wonderful, is easy to apply and doesn’t leave my hair feeling weighed down or greasy. I really enjoy how smooth and shiny it helps the ends of my hair look. Plus, seriously, anything that smells this good is a-okay in my book.

Come Over All The Time!! A Creative Guest Book. This is easily the cutest guest book you will ever find. One hundred pages, twenty different designs that are repeated five times. The prompts are really adorable and definitely inspire creativity. We will actually be using this for our wedding reception this coming weekend. My mom kept bugging me to get a guest book but obviously, I didn’t want something boring. This guest book is the perfect choice for us. I like the idea of our guests having interesting prompts that aren’t necessarily wedding related. I can’t wait to see what everyone writes and draws!

Paula’s Choice Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. Absolutely in love with this stuff! The serum is said to visibly improve the appearance of wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dryness, and vibrancy. It ‘fights multiple signs of aging’. I can’t speak to that but I will say my skin looks AMAZING. I am seriously glowing (and it’s not just my new highlighter!) If you have greasy skin, you might want to skip this serum but if you’re like me and neeeeed that extra moisture you’ll love it! This is another product that I’m now using daily. I truly enjoy putting it on every morning.
